An incredible moment happened during last year's World Series that had nothing to do with baseball: the theme song to The Best Show on WFMU with Tom Scharpling was played to the masses on Fenway Park's organ!
How did a radio show on our little community station in New Jersey gain such mainstream traction?
The success of The Best Show can be attributed to two things: an incredibly talented and hard-working host and program staff, and a supportive freeform environment that allowed the show to grow and develop its own unique character. The Best Show couldn't have happened anywhere else on earth but on WFMU.
Please support WFMU during our 2014 Fundraising Marathon, and help us maintain the core programming philosophy, values, and technology that allowed a program like The Best Show to come into its own and flourish. Make your tax-deductible pledge today!
This year, we've got tons of exciting things in store: the grand opening of our performance space, the premiere of the WFMU documentary, more visual broadcasts, updates to our mobile apps, and our Record Fair moves to springtime.
As long as you're there with us, we can make it all happen! We're a little worried about diving into our Marathon without The Best Show this year, but I keep reminding myself that WFMU listeners have always pulled through for us. Let us not break from history!
